System walking stick, a telescope, England 1880.
Gadget-System stick. The tip is made of iron and brass, high and decorated by a series of thin circles. The shaft is made entirely of painted brass and constructed to emulate a bamboo cane. The painting of the entire barrel completed everything. The cushion-cut knob is made of briar. The tip unscrews revealing the eyepiece inside which, extracted by sliding, guaranteed focus adjustment. The knob unscrews releasing the front lens, protected by a leather disc and the knob when not in use. England 1880 ca.
